Sophie finally has some down time between jobs, but her plans awry when Natasha, without Sophie's knowledge or approval, decides that Sophie needs a backyard renovation and enlists a TV crew to tear up her yard and build a much needed garage.

To stay out of the way of the construction, Sophie tries to surprise her boyfriend, Wolf, with a new rosebush in his yard to replace the one that died. However, while digging away, she uncovers more than what she expects and causes problems that need to be addressed.

At the same time Sophie is also drawn into a problem with one of her family clients. How it all weaves together kept this reader engaged so that I couldn't put it down. ( )

Loved it! Best of the series so far. Even though I could see the twist at the end coming, I didn't have all the details right. I love being surprised! ( )

The mystery was pretty convoluted. I didn't feel all the stories were integrated in a holistic way. ( )

Whoever said that the more things change the more they look alike clearly hasn't read this book. It's a major departure from the usual solid storytelling the author served. There are less people to keep track of. I didn't know what score to give this book. It could be a one, two or three stars. The reading experience was shambolic as I suffered from reader's burnout. On the plus side, the bittersweet conclusion appealed to my nature. The only predictable thing was the overuse, again, of more than one attempting killer, which Krista Davis uses all the time to complicate her plot. That is all. ( )

An easy light read. Recipes included and gardening tips. One in a series of Domestic Diva mysteries.? First one I have read. Would try another at some point. ( )
